Abstract/Notes: Unlike George, Parkhurst, and Naumburg, Adelia Pyle’s role in the early history of the Montessori movement came from discipleship rather than education. Trained as a directress in 1913, Pyle, the daughter of a wealthy New York family, became Montessori’s faithful aide and translator. From 1915 to 1919, the Pyle family was the principal financial contributor to the Montessori Promotion Fund founded by Maria Montessori. The fund purchased the American House of Childhood which manufactured and sold Montessori’s didactic materials. However, the Pyle family’s withdrawal of financial support, due to a conflict between Adelia’s mother, Adelaide McAlpin Pyle and Maria Montessori, had a devastating effect on the expansion of the Montessori Method in the United States. While living and traveling with Montessori, a Roman Catholic, Adelia, a Presbyterian, converted to Catholicism. In 1923, she met the famous Padre Pio, a charismatic Roman Catholic priest in Italy, who was acclaimed as bearing the stigmata, the wounds of the crucified Christ. Adelia Pyle, who seemed to seek the role of disciple, had found a new master. She transferred her allegiance from Montessori to Pio and was his disciple for forty-five years. She died on April 26, 1968 in San Giovanni Rotondo. There has been a movement to have her canonized as a saint of the Catholic Church.
